We present a genome assembly from an individual male Xylota sylvarum (the Golden-tailed Leafwalker; Arthropoda; Insecta; Diptera; Syrphidae). The genome sequence is 534.8 megabases in span. Most of the assembly is scaffolded into five chromosomal pseudomolecules, including the assembled X sex chromosome. The mitochondrial genome has also been assembled and is 16.0 kilobases in length. Gene annotation of this assembly on Ensembl identified 11,993 protein coding genes.
